CUPPA's Office of Communication provides strategic communication direction and support to our faculty, staff, researchers, and students. We work to identify and communicate how CUPPA lives its mission of promoting just, resilient, and livable communities with our internal and external audiences of the UIC campus, Chicagoland, the state of Illinois, the nation, and around the globe.
We work with the UIC News Bureau to garner the media and public attention for our research, events, and activities that serve to inform and educate. We maintain print and digital communication vehicles ranging from our revitalized college print magazine to our weekly internal college e-newsletter, websites, and social media channels along with print and digital marketing materials, and all other correspondence in between. We also administer the college's career and internship blogs featuring open positions around the country for jobs or student internships.
We host robust and varied social media programming across the spectrum including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and YouTube. Our CUPPA10 e-newsletter sent on Monday mornings can arrive weekly to your inbox. Our college website will continue to feature media appearances, special events around the college, our CUPPA Careers blog, CUPPA Student Opportunities blog, and our national job tweets. We link to all units of the college. Our website is the flagship example for the entire campus.
Share, post, and tweet your experiences in CUPPA whenever you can and proudly wear your dedication and commitment to understanding and solving the challenges of cities and good government! #UICCUPPA; @UICCUPPA, @CUPPACareers.
